Regardless of the gender, that Chelsea/Bradley Manning considers herself/himself to be, this person showed to have more balls, than most of men I know. If all of us had as much personal courage, as she/he has, we would be living in a much better world.

Hind sight is always 20/20. He and Assange were wrong. Manning is military traitor

American Government were caught out spying on the World & in their blatant arrogance never thought their corruption would be exposed worldwide. But a few brave ones within their own ranks pulled the plug & showed the world what a seedy, filth-ridden government now runs Capitol Hill. A government who not only spies on all other nations while calling them friends, but a government who can leave a prisoner without clothes in solitary confinement to destroy him as a human being. The terrible end of these evil fiends will come and it is not far off! Bradley Manning is a hero!

Bradley Manning revealed war crimes. He spend enough jail time, and tortured. He should be free.

US-style combat could hardly be called honourable, but then Manning hardly qualifies as its critic.

A pity that Manning was not a combat soldier - he might then have learned that all war is crime.

Manning is a HERO to the world for giving his life to tell the world about US War Crimes. MY HERO
